|Abstract: ||The majority of public works contracts undertaken in developing countries have a total cost of less than US$15,000. They include the provision of enhanced water and sanitation, access ways and pavements, small community buildings and solid waste related construction. We term these projects, ‘micro-projects’. There is a general lack of information for such projects. This paper describes the development and testing of sixty seven performance indicators for use on ‘micro-projects’. They include not only general performance indicators but also indicators for inter-organisational and socio-economic issues. These indicators are based on data from a total of over 800 micro-projects undertaken in developing countries. For each indicator we provide a statement of why the indicator was selected, the key sources of information, and how to determine the indicator. Examples of the use of the indicators are also presented.|
